McAfee provides various premium and free security services to users. Many of these plans provide auto-renewal service. If you want a regular service of a program then you can enable the auto-renewal and use the service without expiry concerns. But not all the McAfee plans offer auto-renewal. If the user has purchased the McAfee plan on special offers like Christmas sales etc then you won’t get the auto-renewal service. Many of the auto-renewal plans of McAfee antivirus have been changed. Users have to check the auto-renewal plan on their devices. If the auto-renewal is enabled then it will renew automatically and the license will not expire.
